December 4, 2010 // 6:35 am - Earlier today the PS3Break PS3 Downgrader was announced, and now the x3Max Team has made available a video of their PS JailBreak clone PS3 modchip dongle in action running PlayStation 3 homebrew on Firmware 3.50 without downgrading!

To quote from (linked above): I was talking to one of the support staff from x3max and they notified me about their new downgrader which they are going to release later today. They have provided me with a video which shows the x3downgrade. I will update the blog when they send me files.

Seems like they got an device which can run homebrew on 3.50 but i think they are releasing an downgrader as well as the support guy told me.

Finally, from the video's caption: The 3.50 firmware is now Jailbreaked, no more need to downgrade !

The dongle can launch homebrews on PS3 with 3.50 firmware, without downgrade !

I agree.. It makes sense to me that a small group at the top of the jailbreak scene controls the 'drip' of open progress in order to reap profits.

Not sure that I agree with it, but at the same time it is business for them. Since they are making money off of it, though, doesn't that make them a much bigger legal target?

Well, hurry the downgraders to all the clones so we can have our open source already!

Yep, all these companies buy and sell the codes as they are available... although unconfirmed, rumor on IRC has it the reason for the delay in a free solution is so that it gives the companies who paid the big bucks for it a chance to get theirs to market first as tryerps3 above also suggests.

Its all great news. But some questions comes to mind: How come ps3break have this code?

Did they buy it off jailbreak? And how is jailbreak getting their hands on these awesome source codes?

So none of you noticed that there's the downgrader, and the hombrew enabler on 3.50... and they're all holding back on a "fully free" release because now the devs realize they can make some serious cash from being "sponsored" by an online modchip/JB/dongle store, hence the "waiting"?

Or am I just being paranoid?

Every day the weight of all this is gonna break through the roof and crush sony lol

I'm very interested in custom game patchse, maybe some one will create a homebrew app for that, just like the ipod commercial "theres an app for that"

So raise up our glasses and heres to the jailbreaking/downgrading scene.

sigh... you do know you can't play gt5 on 3.41 right?

Although you could upgrade, play the game from your disk, then downgrade losing all of your everything everytime you want to play homebrew...

I'm hoping that 3.5 jailbreak is legit.

Does anyone know if sony can stop this in future updates, or is this just for 3.50 ?
